9:11pm
it is so wonderful to have them with me. and my gorgeous daughter-in-law mary. she is expecting another grandchild. we are thrilled about that. it is wonderful to have these grandsons. everyone knows i have five sons. i have 18 grandchildren. what you probably do not know, 13 of them are boys. we are glad we like the boys in her family. it makes it a lot easier. boy is at such a dimension to my life. they taught me a lot of patience. the other thing that boys taught me, lay it all on the table. and then it is over. it is amazing what you learn from children. i am so thrilled to have had
9:12pm
these extraordinary women. are we not lucky to have such strong women? [applause] there is no one on the stage that can appreciate the sentiments better than cindy mccain. i said, sweetheart, i'm never doing this again. he looked at it and he laughed. he said, you say that after every pregnancy. we women know what is like. glauber, we forget. -- gladly, we forget it. it was an interesting decision are around the romney's family table.
9:13pm
the first time it was quite easy. great idea, this will be great, this will be a wonderful experience. ask them again, we do not want to do that again. there is a real truth to that. it is really hard to step forward and it is hard to see someone you love mischaracterized, abused, lied about. why do you step forward? it is because you love this country. [applause] this was the question i asked mitt. all of the boys were giving me the good arguments about why not to do it again. i know that it is hard. i was telling them, talk to the hand. this was the question i asked
9:14pm
him. i know the primary process is difficult. i know the general lection process is difficult. i know it is difficult to defeat an incumbent president. you have to tell me the answer to this. to a gone to this whole process, and if you finally get there, and if you can get there, and you tell me, it is too late, too late to save the country, i need you to answer. is it too late? is it past time to save america? he said it is getting late, but it is not too late. that is all i need to know, go save america. [applause] we are down to the final days of the campaign. it is exciting out there. the momentum is unbelievable. we feel it from those folks that
9:15pm
are here. we love that. you guys give us some much energy, thank you so not. -- thank you so much. thank you. here we are, looking forward, looking forward to the next, how many days? who is counting? is it 11? that is better than yesterday. we are very excited. you can see the momentum is swinging our way. the thing i loved about the debate, i guess what, and on filtered view of my husband, yay! i have been waiting for that for a very long time. hundreds of millions of dollars, half a billion dollars spent on negative ads describing my husband as a person who does not care, a person who is out of
9:16pm
touch. i am here to tell you about a person who is in touch and does care. i appreciated the fact that the audience got to see an unfiltered view, at 70 million people in the first debate. there is someone else on that stage that i like. he is the guy you has a vision for the future and understands what is going on. this is an economic recovery that is not a recovery at all. dasa was hurting the most -- guess who is hurting the most -- women. more women have fallen into poverty than men. it is more women have lost their jobs than men in the last four years. women are hurting. single moms, mom is having a tough time to begin with, they are the ones who are hurting the
9:17pm
most. help is on the way. [applause] to answer that charge the net does not care, this is the hardest one for me. i've been married to the man for 43 years. i have known him for 47 years. that does not make me very yawned, does it? -- young, does it? there was a terrific story that was told at the convention. friends of ours, ted was a firefighter from massachusetts. their son david, 14 years old, that diagnosed with terminal cancer. how hard that was in the family. my husband, father of four at the time, a very busy. what does he do? he takes time out of this life to visit a 14-year-old boy.
9:18pm
he takes time to know that the parents of that boy know they are not doing this alone. the bonds of friendship that developed when you really go into the dark places and people's lives, because we all know everyone of us has a dark place at some point, we cannot escape this world without having hardship or heartache, he was at that boy's bedside table. as you got to know him, he found that david liked fireworks. when david was in and out of the hospital, and one of those times mitt body in a great big box of fireworks.
9:19pm
david asks of very tough question. he now recognizing that he is losing this battle. he says, what is next? what is going to happen to me? mitt says david, do not fear. you are going to be fine and you were going to live on after this life. he will have an eternal life. he will have people on the other side who will love you and share issue. you are going to be just fine, david. your life is going to go on. dave davidson comfort at that time. another time, -- gave david such comfort at that time. he said, could you please help me write my well? we know that a 14-year-old boy does not have many possessions. they sit down -- what do you
9:20pm
care about? what are the things you want to pass on? it was a skateboard and his rifle. he makes sure to write down that the state board will go to his friend and his rifle will go to his brother. the final request, the final request that davis makes is -- would you please be the person who gives the eulogy at my funeral? that is the character of the person that we need and the white house. [applause] we never know the decisions that will come across the president's desk. we know they are hard. it is comforting to know that the person who will be sitting in that desk has integrity and decency and goodness. [applause]
9:21pm
i will tell you this, he will always make decisions and you'll always decide what is best for america, not what is best for him, what is best for america. we're looking forward to the next 11 days. we're excited about it. i will tell you another story i had a few months back when barbara bush was introducing me. what a thrill it was for me to know that barbara bush was going to introduce me. i am such a fan of hers. when you meet her in person, she is just the same, outspoken, frank, but absolutely lovable. she was so cute. it was a fund-raiser in houston. she was chastising everyone in the room that had just given money.
9:22pm
she was telling them they had not given enough. only barbara bush can get away with that. can you even imagine scolding the president of the united states? she said something interesting, this is the most important election in my lifetime. i thought, wow, she is about 86 years old. she has been the wife of the president and the mother of a president. and this is the most important election of for a lifetime. wow. it is the most important election of our lifetime. [applause] we all know that is why you are here. he is running because he loves
9:23pm
america and the nose we have to get it right this time. -- and he knows we have to get it right this time. we are running out of time. we have to get right this time. we have to do everything we can -- we have to listen to barbara bush. you have to really participate. you have to really work because this is going to make all the difference in the world. this will change the course of america. here we are. we are ready. i am excited and i will tell you one other thing. i have seen him succeeded everything he does. as a husband, as a father, as a business guy, at the olympics, as a governor. he does not fail.
9:24pm
[applause] and he will not fail mayor ago. let's give them a chance to make sure we get it right -- and he will not fail mayor ago. leinster we do everything we can get out there and do everything we can to make america prosperous, strong, but again. we're going to win this thing in november. i am going to close with my favorite saint, god bless you, but especially, god bless america. ♪
9:25pm
♪ >> watch our coverage of the presidential candidates. the dates from races from around the country. a look of the issues and campaigns in the battleground state of north carolina as well as conversations with democratic and republican party officials. the debate featuring a third- party presidential candidates. moderated by former cnn talk show host larry king.
9:26pm
>> washington, d.c., mentality, you make these false attacks, you bring little depth to the analysis of the problems. these include editorial board members who are clearly not conservative. they have decided strongly that i am the choice for governor, not you. i am sorry that you did not answer my question. >> 15 seconds for the question. make it a question, please. >> i'm endorsed by planned parenthood of washington because of my consistent support of women's health care, access to women's right of choice. you have been reluctant to state your position on any number of
9:27pm
occasions on this. what have you done to safeguard a woman's access to choice and a woman's access to contraceptive services and health care in general? >> the premise is faults because you suggest that i have not clearly stated my position. i think i just clearly stated it a few days ago the last time we had a debate. >> if all the issues and candidates on c-span, c-span radio, and that c-span.org/ campaign 2012. >> several perspectives on the presidential campaign in the battleground states of north carolina. from "washington journal, this is an hour and 20 minutes. crux of for the next several days, we will be highlighting several key battleground states of camping 2012.
9:28pm
we but n.c. in the spotlight. -- we put north carolina in the spotlight. we have the chief political reporter with the news and observer. he is in raleigh, n.c., this morning. welcome to the program. host: tell us what makes north carolina battleground state. guest: traditionally, it has been a red state. it is moving more and more into a competitive state, and there are several reasons why. one of the things our organization does is ask every year the voters where they stand in terms of conservative
9:29pm
level. only florida and virginia, in terms of southern states, are to the left, so it is pretty divided. it also has political progressives, so it has been pretty much a modern state traditionally. there has been a tremendous influx of people from around the country. particularly in the big metropolitan areas, and none has been changing the politics over the years. in addition, it has a significant african-american population. 22% is african american, which is the largest african-american population in about ground. all of those factors have put north carolina at into play.
9:30pm
>> recently, you wrote an article with the headline, north carolina more like wisconsin than you might think. give us the comparison between north carolina and wisconsin. guest: people like to compare states geographically, but ideologically, north carolina lines up with wisconsin, which is counterintuitive. if you look ideologically, that is where north carolina is. they ask north carolina and wisconsin citizens whether they are conservative or liberal, and that is the connection.
9:31pm
they both have a conservative tradition and a liberal tradition. same thing with north carolina. they have sent paul ryan and a lot of conservatives to washington from wisconsin, but north carolina had conservatives like jesse helms and liberals like gary sanford. both states are divided. both states are capable of sending progressives and conservatives to represent them. both have an urban and rural tradition as well. host: the times news has one of its front-page articles this morning, the economy expands at a moderate pace but that should have little impact on undecided voters. talk to me about the economy in
9:32pm
the last four years in north carolina and what effect it is going to have in terms of getting out the vote and who people are going to vote for when they go to the polls. guest: that is why a lot of people assume that mitt romney will carry the state in 2012. this has been a very rough for years for the country, of course, but for north carolina in particular. the state's unemployment is 9.6%, one of the highest in the country. the main reason is that this is a very heavy manufacturing economy. the state has traditionally taken it on the chin with textiles and furniture.
9:33pm
a lot of it was in decline anyway, losing their base overseas to foreign countries. the recession was a killer. those jobs are gone and gone for good. manufacturing -- the manufacturing states have been particularly hard hit by the recession. in addition, even some of the newer industries such as banking have been really hurt by some of the problems in the banking industry. a lot of people just assume that the state will go republican in 2012 because this has been a pretty tough four years in north carolina.
9:34pm
north carolina has been very slow to make an economic recovery. host: talk to me about the campaign in terms of what activity you see it through various operations in the state and how things might be different in asheville than charlotte or in areas like wilmington along the coast. guest: well, the state is quite different. the western part is the republican heartland. it is also the textile area that has been hardest hit. the states more progressive areas, research triangle area as and eastern north carolina is conservative but it has been traditionally democratic,
9:35pm
although republicans have been making inroads in recent years. the republicans have tended to campaign most heavily in the western part of the state. mitt romney, for example, has made several appearances in the state, but he has not campaigned in the eastern half of the state at all. whereas, president obama has made quite a few appearances in the eastern part of the state, although not recently. that is also true of michelle obama and vice-president biden. they have a tendency to campaign in the eastern part of the state which is where their political strength has been. host: the president has not been in north carolina since the convention.
9:36pm
are people taking notice of that? guest: yes. the president has not campaigned in north carolina since april. governor romney was here a few weeks back, made an appearance in asheville, but that was mainly to have a visit with polygram, a much publicized visit, a visit to convey the message that it was ok for religious conservatives to vote for a mormon. vice-president joe biden has been here several times.
9:37pm
so, this has been a battleground state but not a top tier battleground state. clearly, we have not seen the major candidates here, but we have seen a lot of campaigning we have seen something like $80 million spent here in campaign ads. we have seen as much advertising here as most of the major battleground states. not as much as ohio but almost as much as any other state. you cannot turn your television without seeing a political ad since probably may. we have a tremendous ground operation here. the obama campaign has something like 54 offices here and the republicans have something like 22 offices here. we have a tremendous amount of energy going into the ground operation.
9:38pm
there is a tremendous amount of surrogates coming in almost every day like governors and celebrities and other people. there is a tremendous intensity of campaigning here just not the principles. host: you mentioned governor romney and his meeting with billy graham. talk to was more about that. does dr. graham, maybe his family members and sun, are they taking an active role in the romney campaign? are they just giving their blessing to say that for evangelicals and people of faith in north carolina that it is ok to go ahead and support a mormon?
9:39pm
guest: it is very close to an endorsement. you might as well call it an endorsement. he did not say to vote for him but it was close to it. i don't think you can underestimate the importance of billy graham giving his blessing to a candidate because he is a widely respected figure in north carolina. north carolina is part of the bible belt so i would say that billy graham is probably the most beloved figure in the state. i don't think that's an exaggeration. there are some people that say his son is one really driving the train here.
9:40pm
franklin graham has been much more involved in conservative politics then billy graham. billy graham has been involved in politics over the years and was close to president richard nixon and i think he backed out of politics a little bit because he felt he got burned after watergate. he was disappointed with richard nixon. he was disappointed with some of the language and so forth and back away but he was pretty close to george w. bush. president bush felt that billy graham made a tremendous difference in his life in a personal way in terms of his faith in helping rescue his life. i think he was pretty close to president george w. bush, as well. is not spoken a lot in terms of campaign literature but i think there has been some issues out
9:41pm
there among evangelicals and some skepticism about governor romney's mormon faith and i think billy graham's blessing is an important signal that it is ok to vote for a mormon. there have been full page ads and so forth. i think that is a very important thing in terms of the romney folks for billy graham to give that signal. host:rob christensen is with us. he is talking to us from raleigh and you can read more of his writings at news observer.com. we want to get more input and conversation going with some of our viewers and listeners. in order to do that, pick up the phone or send us a message --
9:42pm
we have a special line for folks calling from north carolina -- you can also send us e-mails -- we are on facebook -- and you can also reach out to us through twitter -- you were telling me before we get on the air about what you have been doing or the last couple of days. review for us the last 24 hours of where you have been and what you have seen and what you expect to see in the next 24 hours.
9:43pm
guest: there is a tremendous get-out-the-vote effort here in the state. there is a lot of surrogates coming in right now to try to encourage people to vote. yesterday, for example, we had the rev. jesse jackson come in to try to encourage young people, particularly young people on historically black campuses, to vote. he was at north carolina central university which is and has starkly black school in durham and he was at the university of chapel hill and in another one in greensboro. he was a student body president
9:44pm
there and a college quarterback. he got his start as a civil rights leader there. he was talking to students and reminding them of the sacrifices that their parents and grandparents made when the civil rights movements happened. in durham, he led a march of students to register to vote. they have sunday registration here in north carolina and early registration period there is a two-week period where you can actually vote. there is a two-week window where you can vote. later in the day, we had alicia keys, the singer and songwriter, who had about 1000 people in raleigh at a park edit for atomic late african-american neighborhood and was urging people to vote. in a suburb of raleigh, smithfield, in a tobacco warehouse which is a schumann this warehouse, we had about
9:45pm
5000 people show up to here pat mccrory, the republican for governor and chris christie. this is his third trip to the state. he has campaigned so often, he says he is thinking of moving here. he has campaigned for the republican ticket. host: i'm sure they would miss the governor dearly if he were to leave new jersey and moved to north carolina. let's go to the phones -- our first caller is calling from asheville, n.c., on our line for independences. caller: rob, i'm surprised you did not mention that asheville is a very liberal city and textiles is not our primary industry. i live across the road from billy graham's compound.
9:46pm
you did not bring up the fact that he removed mitt romney and mormoniam as a cult from his list and has been controversial here. for the last two years, republicans have been in control of north carolina, unfortunately. they get into abortion and voter i.d. which was defeated. going back to asheville, we are a liberal city. i have already voted for obama and i voted for him in 2008 and i think he is the answer for this country, not romney. host: talk to us. guest: western north carolina is a fairly conservative area. asheville is a liberal pocket
9:47pm
within western north carolina. it is true that the website for the graham association had listed more medicine as a cult until recently, until they had kind words for mitt romney and they took that off their website. make about what you will. host: our next call comes from edwin in n.c., on our line for republicans. caller: i am glad to see you on the air but my thing in this election has been more nuclear polarized and i voted for barack obama the first time but he will not get my vote the second time. he does not have a plan for this country.
9:48pm
if we continue to go in the direction we are going, things will not be corrected. rather than attacking the person, he waits until almost the last 10 days to insult our intelligence to have a booklet of all of his plants which are just a rehash plans of the last four years. i was proud to go to the voting booth early. we had a -- even today, we still have a large turnout of early voters in newburn and i am glad to see a lot of people i have spoken to who were in my shoes last time that voted for barack obama and have changed their mind. host: robb christensen, go ahead. guest: he is giving his opinion
9:49pm
but we have had a tremendous turnout of early voting in north carolina. in 2008, 51% of the electorate voted before election day. essentially, obama won the election before election day. john mccain won the election day vote but obama had already won the election in the early voting period. we have already had 1 million people voted north carolina. at this point, the democrats are doing better on the early voting, it appears. we don't have a vote count so we don't know exactly what the tally is. if you look at things -- we know things like number of active
9:50pm
americans who have voted and that is up from the percentage who voted in 2008. percentage is greater this time at this juncture that was in 2008. the number of younger voters who tend to be more for obama than for running a, a greater percentage is up this time compared to 2008. those are all good signs for the obama campaign. but, what that will mean at the end, we don't know but the obama campaign had a good signal from that. host: we have a chart from an article in the "atlantic." it talks about absentee ballot request in north carolina.
9:51pm
host: the democrats made a gain of about 9000. in your observations, do you see more democrats look again for absentee ballots in 2012 over 2008?
9:52pm
might this make a difference for the obama campaign? guest: i think the key is in the early voting. at this point, the democrats seem to be having an edge in the early voting. you can look at the demographic numbers. there are some reasons why that might be the case. the obama campaign never actually shut down their
9:53pm
operation from the 2008 campaign. they have a much larger staff and a much larger organization and did they have essentially been staffed up and going full steam for the last year. the republicans in 2008, they were caught unaware because they did not how to put north carolina in play. they thought it was a republican state. they vowed that would have a much better get out the vote organization and they do. even so, they are still playing catch-up because they had to go through the whole primary season to pick a nominee. it was only this spring where they put together their organization in north carolina so they were already seven or eight months behind the democrats when they started organizing here in north carolina. i think the democrats have a strong organizational edge.
9:54pm
i don't know what that means but it could mean a couple of things -- i think the conventional wisdom is that the state least slightly toward romney. that is possibly right. we have had three polls this week, three separate polls, that have shown the state is still very close. that has to be considered a tossup. host: our next call is from durham, n.c., on our independent line.
9:55pm
good caller: morning, gentlemen. i think our state remains fairly close. i think it will be a lot about voter turnout. my question is about the impact health care will have a north carolina. i work in a hospital and i have seen sweeping improvements to and quality of care related to health reform. i feel it is not addressed in a lot of the riding that is coming out. what do you think of the health care will have? casco i was at their rally last night -- guest: i was at a rally
9:56pm
last night and he said he would do everything he could do to repeal obamacare. it is still very popular issue for republicans. the polling in north carolina still suggest that the president -- obamacare is not very popular in north carolina, although if you start taking pieces of that like pre-existing conditions, it becomes something -- various parts of it are more popular with the public. it has been a tough sell in north carolina. it is one of the reasons why the state legislature went republican.
9:57pm
it has been a tough issue for democrats. it has been a good issue for republicans. host: what are you going to be watching for on election night in north carolina? guest: the national presidential race is one that has gotten -- that is what people are looking at in north carolina. in the states, it has been -- we have several battlegrounds going on. we have a governor's race going on. north carolina has had 20 straight years of democratic governors. it is the longest running democratic governors east of the mississippi river. that could come to an end. the current incumbent governor,
9:58pm
the state's first woman governor, decided not to see reelection. the democratic nominee is the lieutenant governor. those polls suggest that he is in trouble. looks to be in very good shape be the first republican governor sense to martin was elected in 1980. it is shaping up as a very good republican year in the state. host: you have quite a contest going on in the 11th district. guest: let me jump back a little bit. in 2010, we had the first
9:59pm
republican legislature sense the 1800's. eight games just as redistricting happened. -- it came just as redistricting happen. we had new lines drawn for congressional districts. these new lines, right now, we have an 8-7 break down. what is likely to happen is republicans think they can pick up four seats. that will be the biggest pickup of any state in the country. to pick up two seats -- faced with the unfavorable districts.
10:00pm
brad miller in the 13th -- the eighth district in the charlotte area, a tough reelection fight. the race that is getting all the attention, and that is the cliffhanger, is in the seventh district. conservative democrat mike mcintyre is facing a very difficult fight any much more republican district. that is one of the most expensive congressional races in the country. a lot of decimal money is flowing into that. it flows into the momentum. it, and to this up is to impart
10:01pm
of the state. mcentire is trying to hold on to a district that is much more republican. that is the district everyone is looking for. we could see the state delegation with some suggested democrat to a majority of 10-3 republican majority overnight. >> tip is the majority and author and also this author of politics. we will go back to the funds. your and the washington, a journal. you're a hit. the >> my question is, how can you say that mitt romney is a winning in north carolina. he paid 71 dozen doors, he wants
10:02pm
the border n.c. to work with her $1,000 at staples. if the combined them, the original images much as 40 story above the. any leftover dealings with the governor based on his experience with the governors and spur who he was embroiled with? parks one of the reasons there is a streak in north carolina one of the reasons he has had a difficult time putting the stick away as there was a heavy brush of tv advertising over the summer tying mitt romney to reach a end up hitting a
10:03pm
businessman and outsourcing. this is where a lot of businessmen closed at went overseas. i think that hurt gov. romney and into the seat. the as one of the reason the state has to remain the competitive. heaven and member of the company's the has had some connection to bain capital. the mayhem closed its doors and taken them on tours across the state. those kind of issues the democrats have tried to exploit. they have put up. critics finalists and mr. obama
10:04pm
has twice as many feel offices and the interests of states. it he is ahead of florida, virginia, and he has pulled even at enter ohio. i am wondering if this is an election of the men put it loves. i see our president as every time it is a situation, he has a plan. it does not seem to come into fruition. i think he is fine with the seat of his pants. how could he possibly be behind it? >> i think it has to do in part with the type of politics
10:05pm
democrats are on, and republicans orrin. a lot of the -- this is a state that has the highest african- american of politics of the bare ground states. door to door knocking type organizing. that is boots and the ground it. campaign to address any trouble kharkov a man. they seem to be labor intensive.
10:06pm
the next call comes from how the air. >> could the morning. yes, i think that it will be very important if following burst candid and to opinions and the human rights. of course, being the right to life. the right to belief,. the the is extremely important. and it will be he missed tonight, and excited the crunches. t were so very arraignments. goodbye. >> off i think there is a sentiment talking about a
10:07pm
washington, i think is the presence as a prayer or a kid are pretty starkly laid up. >> before we let you go, sandy has to the east coast with a going into the particulars about how big the storms are or when it is heading to hit. what kinds of plants are we making to make sure the continued operations in north carolina? >> it will not have a huge impact of the journal's carolina. the coastal areas is at least populated area of the state. it is i have an effect of it was
10:08pm
